India, Mauritius agree upon critical partnership in various sectors

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Mauritian counterpart Pravind Kumar Jugnauth held extensive talks to boost bilateral relations on 22 Jan in Varanasi.

Both leaders met in Varanasi on the side-lines of the 15th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas.

Mr Modi and Mr Jugnauth also discussed the on-going bilateral development co-operation projects.
New proposals for critical partnership projects in health, disaster management and energy sectors were agreed upon in the deliberations.

India is the largest trading partner of Mauritius and has been the largest exporter of goods and services to the Indian Ocean island nation since 2007. India's exports to Mauritius comprise largely of petroleum products.

The Mauritian Prime Minister will visit Prayagraj on January 24 for the Kumbh Mela and then proceed to Mumbai.

Jugnauth will also be the guest of honour at the official celebrations to mark the Republic Day in Mumbai.
